About The Drive:
The Drive is a socially distanced drive-in movie venue set on the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. The Drive offers outdoor fun in a safe environment
Beginning with a touch-free ticketing system, your health and safety are considered in every step of The Drive experience. Large parking places allow for room to enjoy the movie – much more space than your average drive-in. Each space is properly distanced from neighboring spaces by at least eight feet
Concessions are sold by fairgrounds concession vendors. Food and beverages, including beer and wine, can be ordered by a mobile app and delivered directly to vehicles. Set up in a large, socially distanced parking space and enjoy the entertainment without leaving your spot. Everything you need is delivered to your parking space!
Huge, 40ft by 20ft screens and cinema quality movie projectors combine for an excellent viewing experience. Crisp FM audio will be transmitted directly to car radios or FM radio devices. Health and safety focused rules, regulations and protocols are an important part of The Drive’s DNA. We are here to provide an outdoor entertainment experience where everyone can relax and enjoy a movie with family and friends!
